  • Hey stressed, I'm in the same boat you are in.For the past week I've read articles trying to find an easy fix on how to get some kind of diet started.I have to do something too! I read women need to up their amount of vitamin D if you do you'll lose weight, well I'm gonna go buy some plus start watching what I eat.I've never been much of an exerciser but I told my hubby I want a treadmill for xmas. I have to do something because for one, i can see a BIG difference in my health, not to mention my clothing size and I'm really embarassed how I look! It just seems like I have NO willpower.If you wanna give it a go, I will to! It's unfortunate it's the hollidays but I have to quit putting it off! Send me a message if you wanna get this started.

  • sounds good to me, maybe we could motivate each other! I'm sick and tired of being the "fat girl!" I'm mad I let myself get like this! How do we talk to eachother on here besides this way? Let me know if you know how!

  • Ladies- come check out the Healthy Weight Loss group!
    DON"T DIET! They don't work...make a lifestyle change. If you feel the urge to snack- get a hobby...do squats, lunges, jog in place, chew some gum, BRUSH YOUR TEETH!!! the urge will go away. YOU have to make the decision and stick with it. I've lost 57 lbs in 9 months.
    PM me if you want tips, etc...

  • Look into Juice Plus. I lost 19 lbs in three months by using the capsules and smoothie mix.
